Today @ 8:00 PM I’m gonna play with Jack Saint some dirty, rockin’ underground sounds. I’ll sing two songs of my own, then I’ll join the Saints for some their stuff. Come to the Pogłos (WAW, PL) to hear us screamin’ f****n loud, sounds like a plan?

Something went wrong. Terribly wrong. The plague, Russian aggression against Ukraine, all that pain and suffering…
No, I’m not able to heal it. But I can play guitar. And I will play some peaceful notes at Skład Butelek on 29.04, 8:00 PM. Music Therapy Sessions are dedicated to those who are tired, unsure, lost. Come and have some rest. Yes, you can buy tickets at the door, but if you are a refugee or a volunteer helping refugees you don’t have to pay me anything.

You know? This pandemic shit really weakens me, sometimes I even find it hard to go practicing… That makes me value each concert I play even more. It’s like f***** xmas in the middle of February, or something. And that’s why I’m really happy to invite you to my solo gig in Skład Butelek (WAW, PL)
I’m playing on 19th February, 20:00CET. Skład Butelek is kind of “off the grid” place, it really fits this kind of music I think. I want to focus on some new themes, new concepts… Just come & listen, and I’ll try to make it worth it, OK?
Marcin Olak solo, 19.02, 20:00 @ Skład Butelek (11 Listopada 22, WAW). Tickets at the door: 15PLN.
BTW – my solo guitar music i available on my Bandcamp. You can listen, you can buy – I strongly encourage you to buy music directly from the artists via Bandcamp, it’s one of the very few platforms that actually is fair and respects the musicians.
Well, I didn’s see it comin’. Just one phone call in the morning – and here it is. Marcin Olak Trio, performing live again, the same day. With Maciek Szczyciński on bass and Krzysztof Szmańda on drums. Hope you enjoy.
I’d like to thank Pałac w Radziejowicach for the invitation and Music Machines for audio and video.
Today, at 21:00 I’ll play for you an improvised set with Music From Non-Existent movies. It will be a unique concert – Anna Gadt joins me this time, I’s soooo lucky! She’s a brilliant artist, improviser, singer, composer… and a great person – if you don’t know her albums, be sure to listen. More information about Anna can be found here.
One more thing – we decided to base our improvisations on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This is the milestone document which says that we are all equal. That we have the same rights. That no one can be illegally deprived of these rights, freedom, or dignity … Now, when nationalism begins to revive again, when people are excluded on the basis of their beliefs, sexual orientation, when we are so divided – now we want to recall this text: “all people are born equal… ”. This declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations in 1948. After the war. So that there would be no more wars …
Link to the concert will appear here and on my Facebook 15 mins before the concert. You can listen and watch it for free. Enjoy!

Well… This COVID-19 thing’s hit us all. I miss concerts, I miss meeting you, I miss playing live. And finally, courtesy of the Polish Ministry of Culture, I’ll be able to play something live. For the first time since the premiere of my “Music From Non-Existent Movies”, I’ll play those tunes live. I’ll play in my dungeon, in my studio, and anyone who wants to, will be able to watch it live. Listen. Participate.
I’ll play on 15.07 at 21:00. Such a strange moment, in the middle of the week, in the middle of summer. In the middle.
I wonder how it’ll sound… It’s improvised music, after all, played once and never repeated. Well…
Music From Non Existent Movies is only available on my Bandcamp, only digital version. Everything is digital now.
Streaming will be available on my YouTube channel and the concert link will be available soon. Stay tuned!

Here we go again! On October 19. we’ll play on Podlasie Jazz Festiwal. I decided to play Imagine Nation there – tunes I’ve written for last year’s Jazz Jamboree. Those themes were originally written for quintet, with voice and another guitar. This time I’ve made trio arrangements, hope you’ll like them. I’ll play with great musicians and friends, Wojtek Pulcyn on bass and Sebastian Frankiewicz on drums. Come and check it up!
